reillyeon has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/sensors:

== Relation to Permissions API ==
Discussions of the privacy considerations of this API have floated the idea of a low-resolution mode which does not require a permission, and a high-resolution mode that does. While the definition of low and high resolution should be left to the User Agent there should be a well defined interface for determining whether the user has granted permission for high-resolution mode. This can be done through the [Permissions API](https://www.w3.org/TR/permissions/).
